Estonian Students Build Giant Wooden Megaphones To Listen To The Forest

Posted on Other Stuff 7

A group of interior architecture students have built king-size wooden megaphones deep in the woods in Estonia. It is a large scale acoustic installation that amplifies the sounds of the forest.

The installation blends contemporary architectural space and wilderness and is accessible for hikers and nature lovers for free.The objects were placed at such a distance and angle that the sound feed from all the three directions creates a delicate unique sound at the very centre.

The installation can also be used as a sitting and resting area or even as a stage. The author of the idea is an interior architecture student Birgit Õigus. The group was instructed by designers Tõnis Kalve, Ahti Grünberg and architecture office b210.
